The RACGP has welcomed new funding for GPs to establish children’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics in Victorian public schools, but warns doctors are at breaking point over the rollout of the program. 

President Dr Karen Price says uptake of the grants, worth up to $11,500 each, will depend on whether exhausted GPs have the capacity to take part as the virus continues to furlough primary care workers.
